I was looking for a picture of Durer's 'Praying Hands' for my assemly using 'Ask Jeeves'.  I had already found a version of the story in an assembly book, but yours is much more detailed but still very suitable.  Thank you!

I found your site when looking for info about Ireland. Very nice and informative. I have added a link on my site to it, so everybody can enjoy it. I hope adding this link isn't a problem. If so, just let me know, and I will remove it from my site. Greetings from Holland,

Didn't find site via search engine but there was no "other" listed.  Spent hours in library tonight looking up avenues to search my family in Sligo, Ireland.  My grandfather, John Pugh, Jr., worked at Lissadell prior to his sailing to the US in late 1800 or very early 1900s.  I know of the Ancestry site and it is great!  My heart just keep on that Lissadell, thinking of him as a young man working there.  Story goes that he shot a rabbit and had to leave Ireland.  Do you think there is any truth to that?  Seems anything below the ground was all that Irish people had right to.  Anyway, have just started my search and it is awesome!  Do you have anyone that you could suggest to search for my grandfather's birth certificate, or perhaps his father's death certificate, or whatever?  Your site is great.  I have marked it and will return to it when I can really spend more time enjoying it.  Please pray for us over here.  It is a dreadful time for our country.  We can't bel!
ieve this has happened.  I suppose one never gets accustomed to terrorism.  You have certainly had your share of conflicts over in Ireland and we grieve over those, of course.  God bless you and God bless America and God bless Ireland.  I visited there in '85 - would love to return.  Would love to live there!

First of all, I'm terribly sorry. I tried so hard to find out your name from your website so that I could address you properly, but somehow just couldn't find a name.

I'm a student in Birmingham, UK, and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your website, especially your page on Connemara. It's absolutely beautiful. I recently went to Ireland and fell in love with Connemara. I came back, did a search on the Internet for "connemara" and came up with your page. I've also completely fallen in love with the music on that page: Is it copyrighted and / or your own creation? If it's available for use by other people on, say, a personal homepage, would it be possible for you to let me know what it is, and how I might get a hold of it?

Thank you so much in advance. I do hope you keep the site going. God bless.

the Journey

For those who have just joined me on this page why not go to the beginning of our travels and see some of the places in The Start of Our Journey through the West of Ireland.

My Place Amongst the Stones gives the history of my company name, Moytura - a celtic heritage going back thousands of years.

We journey to my own parish of Lackagh - a small village just 12 miles from Galway with a mighty big history. Learn all about the Battle of Knockdoe - one of Ireland's bloodiest of conflicts in the 16th century.

We then move on to take a quick jaunt around Galway City; and then to the heart of Connemara - with its wild and wonderful beauty.

From there we journey south into County Clare and see The Burren - a place that has lain undisturbed since the Ice-age and of immense botanical, ecological and archaeological importance.

Visit Ireland's finest early monastic heritage centre in Clonmacnoise, County Offaly; and to my favourite of all the early Christian Church locations - Clonfert, South County Galway, with its beautiful tiny 12th century Cathedral of Saint Brendan. Come with me around the grounds and see the Bishop's Palace and the 1000 year old Yew Walk.

While on the Clonfert pages, you can learn a potted history of Saint Brendan the Navigator, possibly the first European to set foot in North America in the 6th. century. And join me in the celebrations when this tiny cathedral was listed in the World Monuments Watch 2000 most endangered monuments.

Come with me on my 'Famine Journey' which starts in Westport, and moves to Sligo, my Dad's County and the departure port for many of the 'Coffin Ships'. This part of my journey ends in Grosse-Île on a tiny island east of Quebec City.

On this page you will learn some of the history of our Famine Refugees and find the final resting place of over 6,000 of my country folk who died within sight of their first freedom in over 300 years. This is where many of the Irish roots in North America started.

Our Journey moves on to other places on that visit to Canada where we see Quebec City and some of Ontario's lovely places and then to two of Canada's famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and to Cap-de-la-Madeleine.

Finally, join me on my pilgrimage to a peaceful haven in a war-torn country in Medugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovinia. The other areas of my Web site can be found in the drop-down box below.
